Prepare for the Battle
The Congregator of Flesh is a tough enemy that can poison you with its toxic gas attacks. You need to be ready for this battle with the right items and equipment. Here are some tips:
- Use items that resist or remove poison effects, such as potions, flasks, or herbs.
- Use weapons that have high damage and speed, such as swords, axes, or hammers.
- Use armor that has high defense and poison resistance, such as heavy or medium armor.
- Use shields that have high stability and block rate, such as tower shields or kite shields.
- Use runes that enhance your weapons or armor with elemental damage or resistance, such as fire, lightning, or magic runes.
Reach the Arena
The Congregator of Flesh is located in a pit in the Forsaken Fen, a swampy area full of enemies and traps. You need to find a way to reach the arena without falling into the pit. Here are some tips:
- Follow the wooden planks, platforms, levers, ladders, bridges, and towers in the swamp.
- Avoid the poisonous water, spiked traps, explosive barrels, and crossbowmen along the way.
- Reach the platform above the pit where the boss is waiting for you.
Fight the Boss
The Congregator of Flesh is a massive creature that has a claw, teeth, and a parasite that makes it stronger and more poisonous. You need to know its attacks, its weaknesses, and how to survive its second phase. Here are some tips:
- Dodge its swipe, smash, bite, and body slam attacks by rolling behind, away, or to the side of it.
- Block its swipe or smash attacks with a shield, but not its bite or body slam attacks, as they can hurt you more.
- Hit its leg, head, or parasite to deal more damage and stagger it. Its leg and head are on its sides, and its parasite is on its back. Use ranged attacks or magic for the parasite.
- Watch out for its new attacks in its second phase: spinning attack and summoning attack. Roll away from its spinning attack and kill its summoned enemies fast.
